Part Two Socialist, Marxist and Communist Indoctrination School kids are being prepared for a socialist world government under the United Nationsto which most public school teachers would not object. The kids are being taught that one culture is just as good as another.
Eastern States travelers returned late on the evening of the 27th of April. Day one was the travelling component.
Day Two After a 7: This is the site of a timber palacethat was built over four hundred years ago. The palace and its gardens create a magical wonderland of a bygone era in the Kingdom of Thailand and to be able to step back into the history of Thailand.
After an hour at Bang Pa-In we traveled further north to Ayutthaya, the ancient capital of Thailand prior to AD when it was abandoned after wars with the invading armies from Burma. This area is now an historic park under the charter of the United Nations. Our next move for the afternoon was on to a pier closer back towards Bangkok where we boarded a ferry for the return trip down the Chayo Phraya River to the River City pier in the centre of Bangkok itself.
This is a delightful trip for our travellers to relax and get to know each other after flights the previous day from different parts of Australia.
We arrived back at the Royal Benja Hotel around 5: We laid a few ground rules while the group was together and handed out the shirts and caps. Those that needed their beauty sleep moved back to their rooms, Ian and I took a group of students and their carers to Terminal 21, a themed shopping centre which caters for the younger shopper.
Day Three Six thirty wake up call, bags out, breakfast and on the bus at seven thirty and on our way to Nakom Pathom, the site of Phra Pathom Chedi, the tallest stupa in the world. The significance of Nakom Pathom is that before WWII there was a medical outpost here so the Japanese in their wisdom decided it would be a good place to put a hospital, which they did.
It had a capacity of 10, beds able to handle all the sick and injured returning from off the Railway and also from Burma. There was a lot of innovative surgery and treatments developed there that save a tremendouslot of lives and relieved a lot of suffering.
From here we move to Nong Pladuk, the place where the Railway to Burma left the main railway line that ran to Singapore. This was also known as the 0 kilometre point where all measurements were taken from on Thailand side of Three Pagodas Pass. There was a large prison camp in this area along with workshops, foundries, fuel refineries.
Many British POWs were here as Britain had a big dependence on railways and the obvious choice was to collectexperienced railway workers. A few kilometres away is the town of Ban Pong, the railway station where the POWs got off the train from Singapore on their journey north up the railway line to their various places of work.
A few of the earlier work forces were lucky enough to have road transport up to Tarsao and beyond. The rest that arrived after the monsoons set in had no choice but to walk as the tracks became impassable and turned into mud.
This was extremely difficult as the later forces were also suffering from malaria, dysentery, malnutrition and all the tropical diseases known apart from cholera which was yet to come.
We leave the main road and travel to the Mae Klong River east of Kanchanaburi to a camp site known as Tha Maung, this was the main transit camp for POWs travelling up River and for those returning down River.
At some stage nearly every POW had contact with this camp, even those returning from Burma. The whole of the camp area is now market gardens for the produce of fresh fruit and vegetables for the Tha Muang and Kanchanaburi city area.
This was one of the more pleasant camps to have spent some time in. Food was more plentiful and the pressure of work had eased considerably.The Texarkana Gazette is the premier source for local news and sports in Texarkana and the surrounding Arklatex areas. farm income declining 11/19/18 the st.
